Resident Company

As Jean gets off the train in Poor Prairie, a dusty speck on the map during the Depression, she meets a handsome man holding a cloth bag that conceals a brand new basketball. Jean has been exiled to what she fears is her “grave town” to be caretaker for her wild younger cousin. Haunt Johnny has a checkered past of his own, but he knows how to coach. In true pioneering spirit, the town’s girls build a basketball team that just might be their means of escape to a better life. Inspired by the 1930’s basketball teams in the rural Midwest, The Tall Girls asks, “Who can afford the luxury of play? And will these young women prevail against a town hell bent on crushing their dreams?”

“Meg Miroshnik’s The Tall Girls looks back to a time when a pioneer like Babe Didrikson Zaharias was carving her name in sports history and challenging culturally accepted ideals of beauty and femininity,” comments Producing Artistic Director Sandy Shinner. “Audiences will cheer for these passionate girls of Poor Prairie who dream that playing basketball will give them a shot at a better life.”
